and replenish our beaches. our department of education has worked night and day to get schools reopened right away, and where that wasn't possible, to get them restored by the next school year, all while maintaining our commitment to a full 180-day school year of education for our kids. executive order 107 makes sure that when insurance payments do come, they are not compromised by excessive deductibles and ensures that our citizens maximize their reimbursement. while there are dozens of other examples of the never quit attitude of this administration and our citizens, there is none better than the miracle of route 35 in mantoloking. at the mantoloking bridge, route 35 had been completely washed away by sandy. i stood at the spot where the atlantic ocean flowed into the bay where route 35 once carried thousands of cars a day to vacations down the shore. within days, commissioner jim simpson, the department of transportation and our private sector partners had a temporary road built to allow emergency vehicles onto the island. now, merely 10 weeks after our state's worst storm, you see a perma
mentioned. perhaps better voter education about the tools that are out there to help them know where they need to vote, more staffing at the polling places where a captain or assistant captain could actually go through the front lines, the czech and lines to interface with the voters, say has anyone -- checkin lines to interface with the voters, say has anyone got any questions? i can check for you. that has become a real issue with all of the precincts. so come up voter education might be part of it, and i think early voting has law lot of voters into thinking "i can vote anywhere." and the only races they care about will be counted and in some cases the lower level races, they may be upset about. but it is like a shrug it for them and they say, oh, well. i think some of the lower races, some of the ballot initiatives, the more localized issues -- there might be a real problem in the end. so. >> thank you. i have a few things that have been touched on by almost everybody here. just to the voters, about being prepared. i know in arlington county, you can go on the web site. it tells
of the time. we need to do everything we've been doing with the economy, education, etc. we also need to address the plague and scourge of gun violence. we need to address hurricane sandy. so, yes, it is an aggressive agenda. it is a lot of work. but they elect us to lead, my friends. we will. they elect us to perform and we will. we have proven that we can lead. we have proven that we can perform. we know that with these challenges at hand that is exactly what we must now do. we have daunting challenges. no doubt. but these challenges also pose exciting opportunities. yes, it is hard to reform education. i know the politics of it. i know the problems, i know the issues. but, can you imagine how smart this state would be when we actually educate all our children to the best of the god given potential. when every black child and every white child and every urban child is educated to their full potential. i know helping the economy is hard. i know it has been decades of decline. can you imagine how successful our economy is going to be when that upstate economic engine is running at ful
aspect. that is education. i think of the national level or state level rules for sort of outcomes in education. i'm looking at this map and as you pointed out, not only is it is map where crime is in the city, it's a map where you have low performing schools. ought we not put lead on top of our outcomes and not saying you have to close your school because you are dealing with students who are lead poisoned. >> correct. the mapping of a city is really easy to do. it's much -- ethically, it's more important to do something like that where you get at the source than measure blood level. we use the child to indicate what is environment is like and try to turn it around to primary prevention in measuring the environment and try to prevent the child from getting exposed. it turns out soil is very easy to measure the amount of lead in soil. we are doing a lot of work in the city of new orleans to try to advance changing the environment so that children don't get exposed. >> i really appreciate that shift. rather than thinking of the kid as the problem, we think of the environment. thank

equalizer in our society is and always has been public education. the democrats allowed control of our schools, and the republicans permitted the idea that a magnet school, or a charter school is an adequate replacement for engaged, well-paid, focused teachers who act at the direction of their local school district, not the national education association or the national federation of teachers or any other union. we have-- >> about that fight there. >> and we have so many disconnects and the penalty is found in the drop-out rate of this country. they are an absolute disgrace and we have educators, secretary of education, karen lewis in chicago, leading the the employees union, they are a disgrace because they're acting as if they have the problem in hand. meanwhile, school districts are going bankrupt, the teachers' organization admit they're working for themselves and not for the students, and the parents are not engaged in the teaching of those young people, who are our future. >> megyn: but it's the point that knowledge is power and better educated the children are whether they're on
administration has not delivered on its campaign promises, things like dismantling the department of education, getting rid of the department of energy, cutting down on government spending. clearly government spending is far more than it was when reagan took office. taxes are greater. in terms of performance, in terms of delivering our campaign promises in 1988 think it is indeed a failure in that sense. now, it's a success in another sense, namely that i think that the level of debate has been raised in our country on a whole range of issues. a key one is the legitimate role of government in a free society. c-span: that is a call in show here at the end of the reagan administration. what is your reaction when you hear that today? >> guest: well, there is not much that has changed. we still need to ask, or settle, what is the legitimate role of government in a free society and a legitimatlegitimat e role of government in a free society is not that of government taking what belongs to one american and giving it to another american to whom it does not the long. c-span: have you ever in your life
the list of people -- of the really wealthy people and what they paid in taxes. it's a real education to go become and look at that. and i can't imagine what that education would look like today. if you had the same two pieces of information. >> host: one more question before we go to calls. you said you have to -- do you have to be a so-called egyptologist to read bills. >> guest: the taxes are the most demanding. it's not so much you have to have any special training. you just have to be patient. you have to read it and then try to follow it through. go back through it to see exactly who it applies to. some of these were actually quite obscure. some in terms of special interest provisions and a company incorporated in some state on such and such date, required us to then go to that state and very often go through whatever the filings were for them. one thing we ran across had to do with one company which issued 97 million in bonds or something like that. so, we had some of the database people who inquired, will you search this lexus, and see if anybody issued a bond in that amount. and su

'i feel that this is absolutely horrible, that the wars that we as a minority, african-americans, puerto-ricans, etc. , fought many years back have to be refought over and over as the days go by. it's sad that people can't have their own opinions and approve and disapprove without discriminating others. it's a shame that there is only two times in life that we as people with skin and culture differences are seen as equals. those two important days are our first and last days of your--of your life. for example, whe

"the washington post" would argue that the administration needs the nra because of the power, at least the perceived power it still has over members of congress and ultimately it going to be a vote to turn a bill into law. this is a friends close enemies closer strategy. >>> while the white house and congress work to craft some sort of legislation on a national level, new york governor andrew cuomo wants his state to be the first to enact new gun laws in the wake of the shooting at newtown. today, he plans to propose a new restrictive assault weapons ban which would strengthen the state law already in place by covering more guns and magazines. new york one of seven
